>>45288995 Yes, let's hope so. The heatpipes do allow you a bit of flexibility in the positioning of the socket. The bigger problem seems to be clearance between the socket and the top of the motherboard. Some of the fancy motherboards are putting all kinds of caps and heatsinks up there.
>>45289028 You might find they've been soldered in place, otherwise there would be piss-poor transfer. >>45289025 There is no point in getting an 'airtight' case as opposed to something as trivial as an open bench. I can understand the appeal, honestly, but I'm practically inaudible with this.
>>45289055 From what I've seen in the manual, the heat pipes are not soldered in place. You just need an assload of thermal compound to get good conductivity between the pipes and the chassis.
The temperatures aren't going to be great, but it should be more than enough to keep the system stable for what I need. In part, this is an experiment to try building a system with literally no moving parts.
>>45289088 >>45289105 I stand corrected, then. In that case, you'd really want to go out of your way in finding the best paste for it. >>45289090 >No AIO cooling >Suggesting to me it's worthwhile Are those rads cores like 10mm thick after factoring out the mount?
>>45289145 Yeah, no thanks. I saved money when compared to going full loop, and since I am constantly swapping in new components (I love upgrading my GPU) I don't feel like going watercooled with a custom loop.
Sorry, I took convenience of AIO's over custom looping.
And who gives a fuck about how it looks inside when the whole point of this build was performance per dollar?
Seriously, go get a Mac if looks are that important you pleb.
>>45289181 >Got AIO's for $100 for both the X40 and X60 together >MFW cost of a decent reservoir/pump >Not even factoring in cost of waterblock for GPU >MFW next GPU is R9 295X2 >MFW entire build was based on scalability and got my money's worth out of it already
You may say it's not smart or overpriced, but then again, you're just that pleb.
>Waiting for Broadwell before completely new build with new requirements
Does it anger you that I use an FX-9590 in this build?
>>45289232 >Not factoring in thermal limits >Not factoring in full coverage of components (lol aircooled VRM and ram with cut little sinks) >The above two VERY related to a 295x2 which innately runs hot and consumes a lot of power (VRM, thermal limits) >blah blah blah
Yes, I am just a pleb. >Does it anger me No, it really doesn't. Spend the extra dosh on binned components, by all means, but don't think it's a bragging point.
Granted full blocks are costly, but if you're throwing around numbers like 295x2 and 9590, how hypocritical are you?
>>45289197 >MFW Premiere Pro barely gets an FX-9590 at 5ghz STABLE above 50 celsius >MFW R9 290x during Premiere Pro rendering barely breaks 50 celsius >MFW $2,000 build scores this high on 3DMark and all games run on Ultra (except DayZ): http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/4809077?
>>45289271 >Not factoring in 120mm fan directly aimed from the side at VRM's >Not noticing never being near thermal limits at full throttle >Thinking you know more than AMD and the 295X2's design, considering that my workstation at my college campus has two (perks of being the campus media editor) and neither break a sweat at 100% usage
You do realize that this was literally the finest build you can achieve for less than $2k, including parts being shipped, when I built this, and I needed performance over efficiency? But you're the one who's so elitist thinking that this build was bad because muh AIO
>>45289256 If I can afford it, why not? Don't get your jimmies full rustled.
I spent a long time researching for this build. Everyone is so up in arms against AMD because muh single-thread performance and hyperthreading shit, but when you throw AMD a properly multi-threaded application like Premiere Pro, that FX-9590 blows right up out of the water. Sure it is a power beast and it's TDP is hilarious, but when I got it for $200, I was the one left laughing.
Also, if you know how to lay out your airflow in a case, and you have proper fans (Noctua's and Rosewill Hyperboreas on my 240mm radiator in pull), you keep temps stupid low.
I'm honestly tired of the baseless AMD hate. Ironically, I was originally doing a Xeon build but I was going to have to skimp on the GPU to keep it under $2G's. But this PC is fucking killer for the price of the entire build.
Did I mention that I bought two SSD's and all the HDD's with the cash left over so I even solved my storage conundrum?
>>45289980 >Video Editing >Scratch Disks >RAID 0 setup for maximum performance >Multiple GPU's for 4k editing >Watercooling for stability when some render jobs take 12 hours to complete >Multiple GPU's because Red Epic footage color grading is like putting salt in your dickhole >Implying said setup might only be for gamers >2014 >Being this new
Check that privilege sonny.
>>45290015 Whoops got that wrong. Thanks for correction.
It fits all my main points when looking for a case >no windows >great airflow >mid-tower >made out of steel
The two 200mm fans & two 140mm fans, leds, fan controllers AND temperature display + meters that come with it all for ~$70 still make this the best value case I ever bought, I don't know how NZXT pulled off that price. The only con I can find in 4+ years is that it isn't very wide and tall CPU coolers don't fit without removing the side fan.
And it looks really good as well, although I can see why people don't like the shape.
>>45290143 Totally not knocking you on the usability part, which I totally put before design. I'm just one of those guys who'd spend a little more on a Corsair case if I wanted minimalism and filtration.
